Rental homes in Decatur, Stone Mountain, Lithonia, East Point and College Park still need to be winterized and prepared for the colder weather that's coming our way. Here are a few inexpensive things you can do as a tenant to weatherize your rental home, save on energy and ensure a safe home for your family. We have wrote other articles on energy savings in the winter time, so taking some of the steps outlined here will help drastically reduce your energy costs in the winter time. So, without further delay, the list:
